My most recent plug for Rachel Maddow’s ULTRA elicited this me-mail from a prominent liberal Democrat:
“You couldn’t pay me money to listen to a Rachel Maddow podcast. She’s smug, alarmist — a polemic who is past her sell by date.”
That’s way too harsh, in my view, but what we think of Rachel […]
SO much to be thankful for.
As I’ve mentioned before . . . we have hot water! As much as we want! Any time we want it!
For the first 99.9% of human existence that — let alone flight, sanitation, safety, cinema, supermarkets, antibiotics, or smartphones — if imaginable at all, was an impossible dream. […]
There’s nothing even remotely sexy about cataracts so I told friends I was going in for “old guy LASIK.”
I was nervous — well, it’s eye surgery! — but going back for the second eye Wednesday having learned the ropes (“now let’s walk over to the laser room”), I found myself almost wishing I had […]
And now that he’s running again — the grift resumes — Greg Olear’s latest, Trump Versus The CIA, is worth your time.
Not least because it links to his 2020 post, Tinker, Tailor, Mobster, Trump.

But you, dear reader!
I thought you might enjoy this free (for the next 20 hours) screening of Mission: JOY . . . Finding Happiness In Troubled Times.
It precedes […]
One thing sure: we owe our Vets thanks, support, and respect.
Less sure: control of Congress. (You can help with that.)
And the future of Twitter.
Will it be DeSantis or Youngkin (now that Rupert Murdoch has abandoned Trump)?
Biden or youngker?
“One thing to keep in mind if Joe […]
The parallels between America First’s attempt to overthrow our democracy — with the help of sitting Senators and Representatives manipulated by the Germans — and the January 6 crew’s attempt manipulated by the Russians . . . and the attempts then […]
It could be a very long month. Or two.
But as I post this, we still have a shot at defeating those who pretend to believe the election was stolen from Trump.
(Now that J.D. Vance has secured a six-year Senate term, will he go back to characterizing Trump as “America’s Hitler”?)
Thanks for […]
